The Honourable Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Welfare Dr. Ini Adiakpan has charged girl children to make good decisions for a better future as decisions the make today can either make or mar their future.

The comissioner gave the charge at the sensitization programme for teenage girls in secondary schools in Akwa Ibom State with the theme “Girls, Uphold Your Dignity” hosted by the wife of the State Governor, Dr. Mrs Martha Udom Emmanuel.

The event which was organized by her non governmental platform, Family Empowerment and Youth Re-orientation Path- initiative FEYReP was a 1-Day awareness campaign for teenage girls, held today at Ibom Hall, IBB Way, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.

Dr. Adiakpan advised that every knowledge that is being shared by the resource persons should be put to use as knowledge learnt and not used is pointless.

In her words “the primary reason your parents sent you to school is to learn and study and as such Learning should be your guiding principles.”

The Honourable Commissioner thanked the First Lady of Akwa Ibom State, Dr. Martha Udom Emmanuel for putting up such platform to educate the girl child on upholding their dignity.

Dr. Adiakpan stated that the first lady is a notable role model, worthy of emulation by the women and girls in Akwa Ibom State.

The Commissioner mentioned that the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Welfare is solidly behind the girl child and urged them to freely report any form of abuse or rape to the Ministry.

She urged the teachers to spread the message to other children in their respective schools.

200,000 BPD REFINERY TO COMMENCE PRODUCTION IN AKWA IBOM, 2024
The industrialization policy of Governor Udom Emmanuel is gathering steam with more investments berthing Akwa Ibom state through the foreign direct investment programme of the Administration.
The latest is the signing of a progress acknowledgment statement between BUA Group and Axens of France for the former’s proposed 200,000barrels per day refinery in Akwa Ibom State.
With a target of between three to four years for construction, the BUA Group has noted that the refinery is expected to be operational by 2024 all things being equal.
 Speaking at the ceremony earlier this week, Chairman of BUA Group, Abdul Samad Rabiu stated that the refinery, when fully operational, would reduce the huge cost of transporting crude oil offshore, refining it and bringing it back into the country.
Rabiu added that the decision to site the refinery in Akwa Ibom – Southern Nigeria was strategic due to the huge availability of raw materials and its proximity to export petroleum products to regional countries.
He added that the multi-billion-dollar integrated 200,000 bpd refinery and petrochemicals plant will be producing Euro-V fuels and Polypropylene for the domestic and regional markets.
BUA explained that Axens was selected, after a comprehensive process, for its advanced technology licenses, basic engineering, catalysts and adsorbents, proprietary equipment, training and technical services.

The French President, Emmanuel Macron  commended the Chairman of BUA Group, Rabiu, for his commitment to the development of lasting relationships between French and Nigerian businesses.

http://youtHouseReporterRepresented by Franck Riester, the French Minister for Foreign Trade and Attractiveness, Marcon invited Abdul Samad to the “Choose France Summit” and said his administration is ever ready to support people-oriented and developmental projects in Nigeria.
“I am very pleased to see how committed Abdul Samad Rabiu is for the refinery and in the space of philanthropy,” Macron said.
